This video was featured in Richard Kessler’s recent article for the Huffington Post, You Don’t Have to Deny the Arts to Succeed: MS223 in the South Bronx, a 2010 Intel School of Distinction.”  

The short documentary about MS 223 proves that arts education increases a school’s overall performance.  This math and science school in the Bronx added a quality arts program to their curriculum, watched their students improve in all areas of study, and won the 2010 Intel School of Distinction Award for excellence in math and science.

Watch this video and tell us what you think!  Do you believe that cultivating the arts should be a priority for all schools?
